Light plane crashes near Olympic Equestrian venue

 SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -- A small plane crash-landed near the Olympic equestrian venue Monday night. The pilot and passenger escaped without serious injury.

 The aircraft experienced engine difficulties and ditched near the dressage arena at the Olympic venue at Horsley Park, about 25 miles west of downtown Sydney, the New South Wales Police Service said.

 "It was a very minor accident, no dramas," a police spokeswoman said. "It was all over in 20 minutes."

 Nearly 240 horses, worth an estimated $150 million-250 million, are under strict quarantine at Horsley Park in advance of the Sept. 15-Oct. 1 Sydney Games.
